    Question Is this SHA256?


    Hi Guys
    If you do not mind I would like to ask a question:

    password = 123456
    HASH =
    3EB6E0E4C99E54C9846FE3A8920780D99EBE4BCE49F3B555565A763E1FE5A517



    Thank you
    Mike

    Well it's the right length to be the result of sha256.

    But any good password scheme would add salt to the password before hashing it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper

    Hi,

    too lazy to Google?

    No, it's not SHA256("123456") -- assuming you mean the ASCII representation of the string "123456" and not the number itself or something.

    That doesn't mean it's definitely not SHA256. As salem already said, there might be a salt involved or multiple hashing. Those are common practices today. The times of plain hashes are over (though many people still aren't aware of that).
